Experience the most dramatic scenery in New Zealand as you freefall amongst snow-capped mountain tops above the Southern Lakes of Queenstown. Enjoy a breathtaking 5-minute canopy ride above the Wakatipu basin. This once in a lifetime experience includes a 15-minute scenic flight, as well as return transfers to Queenstown.

2. Wanaka: Tandem Skydive Experience 9,000, 12,000 or 15,000-ft

Skydiving is a must-do and Wanaka is the most stunning place to tick it off your bucket list. Admire some of New Zealand’s most beautiful scenery and picturesque landscapes as you freefall from above at 200kph. Your experience starts when you walk in the door and meet the awesome frontline crew. Receive a full briefing and gear up. Before you know it, you’ll be meeting your tandem instructor and climbing into the plane for the incredible scenic flight to altitude. During your 20-minute flight over the Southern Alps, your instructor will point out Mt. Cook, Mt. Aspiring, the Southern Alps, a number of lakes and the Clutha River. Once you’ve reached your chosen altitude, it’s time to leap. Experience the pure adrenaline rush of freefalling at 200kph above the stunning Central Otago landscape. After 25 to 60-seconds of freefall, catch your breath and enjoy the smooth flight under canopy safely back down to the drop zone. Back on the ground, tears of joy, smiles, hugs and fist pumps are all the norm. Make your way back to the hanger to be de-geared then await your edited video and photos. Once your video is done plug it into the computer, gather around your friends and family and relive the moments all over again.

Amazing experience over the beautiful scenery of Queenstown. Tandem skydivers were really friendly and reassuring and made the build-up very easy. We liked the ability to drive ourselves from the central office to the jump zone as it enabled us to leave once finished rather than wait for everyone else. A definite highlight of our time in New Zealand!

Never skydived before so was abit apprehensive!! Tandem partner Ken...awesome put my mind at rest and enjoyed the 15,000 jump..plane tip out a real experience!! My Son also was a real bucket list thing. Team were great...many thanks

The staff were really friendly and cool. Overall the experience was phenomenal!!! I highly recommend jumping out of a plane even if you’re scared of heights (I am).

Top notch! My son and his friend went skydiving, we were just along to watch. It was a great experience, would have changed nothing!

It was such an incredible experience with the guidance and support of a wonderful team of staff and professionals.
